Bree Newsome: Hero

With all the terrible yesterday, I didn't get a chance to mention Bree Newsome! She, of course, is the woman who climbed the flagpole at the South Carolina capital building to take down the confederate flag because the government wouldn't. She's become something of an icon, which is well-deserved.

Check it out:

People Are Illustrating The Woman Who Removed The Confederate Flag As A Superhero

My favorite:

They threw her in jail because they're assholes. But don't worry, it only took 24 hours for people to donate enough to reach her bail. Because she is a national hero.

You can see the video of her in action here:
